Clipse - We Got It 4 Cheap Vol. 2 (2005)
Ever unlucky Clipse’s second pre-Hell Hath No Fury effort: label troubles leading the duo to form the Re-Up Gang with Ab-Liva and Sandman and release two fuck the labels, here’s for the fans! mixtapes, the second being the better one. Easily. Still stands as one of the best mixtapes ever. Re-Up Gang go hard with one-liner after one-liner, too many and too witty to keep up with, over stolen beats. My favourite is Hate It Or Love It ‘cause I loved the original already and Clipse better it. A year later their style and lyricism would be met with a perfect set of beats, but it’s fun hearing these apathetic smart-asses on nice beats we recognize from assorted non-apathetic contexts.
